Final versionEdit

Hey, stranger, my strange love
Could you be mine?
Am I what you're dreaming of?
Hey, stranger, my strange love
What makes you shine?
What makes you fall in love?

It's strange – the way we met
A desert road and then
My car had stopped and you pulled up
On your black motorcycle

You rode me to the bar
We danced all night under
The Christmas lights in the dark black night
With the lightning and the thunder

Hey, stranger, my strange love
Could you be mine?
Am I what you're dreaming of?
Hey, stranger, my strange love
What makes you shine?
What makes you fall in love?

You took me to the edge
Of town – that's where you slept
You liked it best when no one else
Could find you or could bother

You bought us mint juleps
And kissed me on the lips
You held me tight in the TV light
And you said you never loved her

You have a dark heart, like mine
Things that you've seen and done time
Let me love you, let me touch you
Let me show you you'll be fine

Hey, stranger, my strange love
Could you be mine?
Am I what you're dreaming of?
Hey, stranger, my strange love
What makes you shine?
What makes you fall in love?

You have a dark heart, like mine

Demo versionEdit

Hey, stranger, my strange love
Could you be mine?
Am I what you're dreaming of?
Hey, stranger, my strange love
What makes you shine?
What makes you fall in love?

It's strange – the way we met
A desert road and then
My car had stopped and you pulled up
On your black motorcycle

You rode me to the bar
We danced all night under
The Christmas lights in the dark black night
With the lightning and the thunder

Hey, stranger, my strange love
Could you be mine?
Am I what you're dreaming of?
Hey, stranger, my strange love
What makes you shine?
What makes you fall in love?

You took me to the edge
Of town – that's where you slept
You liked it best when no one else
Could find you or could bother

You bought us mint juleps
And kissed me on the lips
You held me tight in the TV light
And you said you never loved her

You have a dark heart, like mine
Things that you've seen and done time
Let me love you, let me touch you
Let me show you you'll be fine

Hey, stranger, my strange love
Could you be mine?
Am I what you're dreaming of?
Hey, stranger, my strange love
What makes you shine?
What makes you fall in love?
